Will these new eateries attract the Uptown crowd?
That’s where the “good” food is, so why would anyone head South for eats?
Unless you’re taking an out-of-town friend to the Hard Rock Cafe for novelty’s sake, there really aren’t many dining options Downtown worth risking your life over. And things get worse the further South you go.
But there’s hope. Underground Atlanta will welcome the addition of several new restaurants in March, 2011.
Footprints Jamaican Restaurant and Lounge, Georgia Peach Restaurant and Lounge, Subway and Le Restaurant Creole, will open at the development, come spring.
Jamaican food and reggae music at Footprints and Creole cuisine at Le Restaurant Creole and Nightclub and for southern fare, Underground will open Georgia Peach.
William P. “Chick” Ciccaglione, Underground Atlanta general manager, thinks the development has made extreme progress since it opened nearly four decades ago.
“We are constantly evolving as a community, and Underground Atlanta is proud to be able to change and bring in new events, stores and restaurants for the public to enjoy, while preserving what has made Underground Atlanta special for four decades.”
They might be bringing in “new events, stores and restaurants,” but are far off from bringing in any new customers. Especially for their new restaurants. Walking by a crime scene doesn’t increase an appetite.
